Eat, pray, love

Wait! I have this for you. Keep grounded so it's like you have four legs. That way you can stay in this world. Also, no looking at world through your head. Look through your heart. That way, you will know God. Which is why you came here, no?

...

Hadn't I wanted this? I had actively participated in every moment of the creation of this life. So why didn't I see myself in any of it? The only thing more impossible than staying was leaving. I didn't wanna hurt anybody, I wanted to slip quietly out the back door and not stop running until I reached Greenland. Instead I made a decision: to pray.. you know...like... to God. And it was such a foreign concept to me that I swear I almost began with: "I'm a big fan of your work."

...

I love your pain. And I love that when we are together I can make it go away. Your love is like a hot panini. When I look into your eyes I hear dolphins clapping.

...

I didn't exactly fall in love with the guy. What happened was I dove out of my marriage and into David's arms exactly the same way a cartoon circus performer dives off a high platform and into a small cup of water, vanishing completely.

...

-Whoof...
-Don't you wanna give me a chance to miss you?

...

-You wanna go away for a year?
-Do you wanna know what I felt when I woke up this morning, Delia? Nothing. No passion, no spark, no faith, no heat, absolutely nothing. And I think I've really gotten past the point where I can be calling this a bad moment.And it just... it terrifies me. I mean, Jesus, this is like... worse than death to me. I mean the idea that this is the person who I'm gonna be from now on...

...

I'm not checking out. I need to change... I have no pulse.

...

I used to have this appetite for food, for my life and it's just gone. I wanna go some place where I can marvel at something. Language, gelato, spaghetti, anything.

...

-I don't know how to be here.
-You wanna know how to be here? Stop constantly waiting for something!

...

My whole life fits in a twelve foot square box... Wow!

...

-I'll probably get back in a week pennyless with dysentery...
-You're my hero.

...

-Io ho una regola: ogni uomo che viene qui non si ferma dormire la notte. Voi, ragazze americane, cuando venite in Italia, volete solo pasta e sausage.
-Io prende.
-E fai bene, brava!

...

It's the perfect combination of italian sounds... I love it.

...

Non si parla cosi in italiano, si parla con i gesti. Si puo parlare tutte le lingue movendo le mani.

...

Maybe you're a woman in search of a word.

...

We all want things to stay the same, David. Settle for living in misery because we're afraid of change, of things crmbling to ruins. Then I looked around in this place, at the chaos it's indoored, the way it's been adapted, burned, pilleged and found a way to build itself back up again and I was reassured maybe my life hasn't been so chaotic, it's just the world that is and the only real trap is getting attached to it. Ruin is a gift. Ruin is the road to transformation... We must always be prepared for endless ways of transformation. Both of us deserve better than staying together because we are afraid we'll be destroyed if we don't.

...

-You have to learn to select your thoughts the same way that you select your clothes everyday. Now that's a power that you can cultivate. You wanna come here and you wanna control your life so bad, work on the mind. That's the only issue you should be trying to controle. 'Cause if you can't master your thoughts, you're in trouble forever.
-I am trying...
-Hello! That's the damn problem. Stop trying! Surrender! Go out into the garden and just sit there. And still your mind. And watch what happens. Why don't you just let it be?

...

-I'm sorry, we were just bad timing.
-I just wanted things to be easy. We were good when things were easy.
-It's not that I need easy right now, I just can't have so hard.
-Well you sound good. Stronger.
-So do you.
-Yeah, I'm an actor... Liz, I got a part. It's on Broadway, it's pretty cool.
-I'm happy for you.
-Alright, well, see you around, kid.

...

-I know you feel awful, but your life's changing. That's not a bad thing. And you're in the perfect place for it, surrounded by grace.
-I thought I was over him, but... I love him.
-Big deal, so you fell in love with someone.
-I really miss him...
-So miss him! Send him some light and love everytime you think him and drop it. You know, if you could clear out all that space in your mind that you're using to obsess over this guy and your failed marriage, you'd have a vaccum and a doorway. And you know what the Universe would do with that doorway? Rush in. God, rush in! Fill you with more love than you ever dreamed of. Man! Groceries, I think you have the capacity someday to love the whole world.

...

-Waiting for him to forgive you is a damn waste of time, Groceries. Forgive yourself.
-It's not that easy...
-Yeah.

...

-Here's the deal: you can stay here 'til you're free of yourself. You hear me. Everything else will take care of itself.
-Is this where you forgave yourself?
-I'm trying, Elizabeth, I am trying.

-I loved you, Steven.
-I know. I still love you.
-So love me.
-I'll miss you.
-So miss me. Send me love and light everytime you think of me and drop it. It won't last forever. Nothing does.

...

Hey, Groceries, believe in love again.

...

-Last time you have too much worry, too much sorrow. Last time you look like sad old woman. Now you pretty. Why so different?
-Well, a lot of things, really. But I was in Rome for four months, just feeding myself, then I went to live in an Ashram in India...
-Now we put together.
-Exactly, that's why I'm here.

...

-People in Bali understand: in order to be happy you must always know where you are. Every moment. Right here is perfect balance. Right at meeting of Heaven and Earth. Not too much God, not too much selfish, otherwise, life too crazy. You lose balance, you lose power. In morning you do meditation from India, serious, very serious. In day, you enjoy Bali. Then, in afternoon, come see me. An off day you do new meditation, very simple: sit in silence and smile.
-I feel balanced already.
-Not so easy, Liz: smile with face, smile with mind, even smile in liver. See you later, aligator.

...

-Mmm... You have no sex for a loooong time, baby. I can tell by your knee. Cartilage very dry. Hormones from sex lubricate joint.
-Ok...
-I pray for you. We sisters...

...

-Mostly brazilian music, but I'm also very much into Phil Collins and Air Supply.
-You really shouldn't say things like that out loud...

...

-Do you need a ride? That way I won't run you over again...

...

-How many places have you visited? I have 46 stamps on my passport.
-I happen to have 49 stamps on my passport.
-49? I knew it!
-You knew what?
-I knew it. We are both andelacins, my dear.
-What is that?
-Andelacin is... come si dice... is an in between. Is the one who lives by the border, because they renounced to the comfort of family life in order to seek elightment.
-Hm, I like your word. And I like the way you say enlightment.
-Elightment.
-You're missing a syllable, but I like it.

...

-And you have divorce. Very difficult. You love her very much. You haven't healed that wound. Now, you are scared to open your heart. You are afraid hurt will happen to you again. Only way to heal is to trust. It's ok to have broken heart, this mean you have tried for something.
-Is it going to be broken again?
-He a good man, Liz, you need a good man.
-Thank you...
-True.
-I'm so sick of people telling me I need a man.
-You don't need a man, Liz, you need a champion.

...

-You have blatter infection. Common after no sex, then too much sexy time.
-We haven't even been apart for a minute in two weeks.
-You're afraid now, right? I understand. Don't want to lose yorself. Love is scary. Dangerous. Happened to me. I pray every day but husband begged for me...
-Don't feel bad about Felipe. Everybody needs affection, honey. Make people do funny things. Everyone gets like that at the beginning of relationship. Want too much happiness, too much pleasure. Until you make yourself sick. Even to Wayan has happened at the beginning of my love affair. I lose myself, Liz.

...

-When I was in Italy, i learned a word: "tutti", which in italian it means "everybody". So that's the lesson, isn't it? When you set out in the world to help yourself, sometimes you end up helping... Tutti.

...

-Balance is not letting anybody love you less than you loves yourself.
-You still smile with your liver, like I tell you?
-Yes.
-You still meditate like you guru in India teach you?
-Yes.
-You have been one with God?
-Yes.
-You love your new boyfriend?
-I ended it.
-Don't understand why you do that.
-I couldn't keep my balance.
-Liz, listen to Ketut. Sometimes, to lose balance for love is part of living balanced life.

...

In the end, I've come to believe in something I called the physics of the quest. A force in nature governed by laws as real as the laws of gravity. The rule of quest physics goes something like this: if you're brave enough to leave behind everything familiar and comforting, which can be anything from your house to bitter old resentments and set out on a truth seeking journey either externally or internally and if you are trully willing to regard everything that happens to you on that journey as a clue and if you accept everyone you meet along the way as a teacher and if you were prepared, most of all, to face and forgive some very difficult realities about yourself, then the truth will not be witheld from you...
Felipe!
I can't help but believe it, given my experience.
-I decided on my word. "Attraversiamo". It means "let's cross over" :).

Un comentariu:

  1. If your man is pushing you away and acting distant

    Or if the guy you’re after isn’t giving you the time of day...

    Then it’s time to pull out all the stops.

    Because 99% of the time, there is only 1 thing you can say to a standoffish guy that will grab him by the heartstrings-

    And get his blood pumping at just the thought of you.

    Insert subject line here and link it to: Your ex won’t be able to resist?

    Once you say this to him, or even send this simple phrase in a text message...

    It will flip his world upside down and you will suddenly find him chasing you-

    And even begging to be with you.

    Here’s what I’m talking about:

    Insert subject line here and link it to: Is your man hiding something? He may need your help?

    Thanks again.
